I presume that'll be the first objection during review, if
bootstrapping is at all a concern (and it should be).
Guix has the youtube-dl package, you can use that directly to
the videos and watch them offline.
‘mpv <https://foo>’ will even call it for you behind the scenes,
without the download wait. Actually the only way to still watch
such videos on less performant machines.
I also use  with uBlock Origin in Icecat to make YouTube itself
almost usable, but none of these approaches address the privacy
concerns that FreeTube claims to do.
